    This is my first time raising chickens, and I noticed this when checking their coop this morning. I've read it's normal for them to shed their intestinal lining, but I can't easily tell the difference between that and signs of coccidiosis. They are all just over eighteen weeks old, 5 barred rock hens and a Jersey giant rooster. If this is coccidiosis, can I put Corid in the waterer they all drink from, even if they're not all affected? I have no easy way to separate them.

    Definitely coccidiosis. Treat all of your birds. The dosage is 2 tsp corid liquid 9.6% per gallon of water, make sure this is the ONLY source of water and make a new batch each day.

    Shed intestinal lining will look like this coral color and is not liquidy. Your photo you can see that the blood is darker red than intestinal lining and is liquid like it splattered.

    Cocci is very easily treated just make sure corid water is the only source of water.

    No problem! I attached photos of intestinal lining so you can see the difference
